Lemna trisulca - ivy leaved duckweed
does anyone know were i can get some of this ive had it before its an attractive plant thatfloats just below the surface of the water and has translucent leaves with a pointed shape, which can look a little like ivy and has the same uses/purposes as ricca(good for fry) ive spotted its cousin the common duckweed sold on ebay but never this..any ideas
wow !! i think you picked something as rare as rocking horse poop.
i grows just as nearly as fast as normal duckweed so its hardly a difficult plants its just not really well known i had some years back i got from a local lake (now filled in)its dont think its native to the uk freezing temps will kill it
its a really nice looking plant compared to the other lemma species and dosent simply cover the surface but grows in a busy mass below the surface
if ever get hold of this plant id be happy to share
i was looking around on the net last night,
i like it,i think it's nice.
seen that it grows in natural situations.
i'm not giving up searching. :)
yea i did some googling ..and kept finding this thread!:roll: im not giving up on this the more i look the more i want it in my tanks
Hmm, I just had a hunt around and can't find it either - it's a pretty awesome looking plant. If either of you manage to locate it could you let me know? I fancy getting some too :-D
the hunt is on...
I've been on a Google and eBay frenzy.. can't find a single listing in the UK except for an ad that was posted in 2006! I found two listings under the name of Lemna trisulca on eBay. One was duckweed, the other in the US :cry:
You might try contacting Stapeley water gardens, Bennetts waterlily Farm, Shirley Aquatics...
I would have thought they would be familiar with Lemna trisulca as its fairly common to aquatic habitats and pond keeping
Which reminds me, its one of the few aquatic plant varieties I haven't tried here, hmmm though bladderwort tends to occupy that niche, here...
